Happy Friday New Yorkers,
Did everyone enjoy the short week? We've compiled a grooving weekend guide featuring festivals, shows, and fairs to see all weekend. There is fun, food and activities for individuals, a group of friends or families alike! πŸŒ†πŸŽŠπŸ˜Ž
There is something brewing down the rabbit hole. Actually, it’s brewing right here in NYC. Inside the Alice In Wonderland bar experience aboard the Mad-Hatter Bus, visitors can enjoy twisted cocktails as mad as the Hatter himself. πŸŽ©πŸΉπŸŽͺ
There’s a way to mesh together eco-consciousness and a rare chance to whale watch in NYC. Gotham Whale, an animal rights group, is hosting their whale watching approximately 5 miles from the city! Buying your ticket funds their non-profit and the research saving the whale communities in our waterways. πŸš’πŸ™πŸ‹
Time to turn your kitchen into a creamery for a special night of frozen dessert. Quickly, before the cooler weather creeps in on us! Test drive this ice cream recipe from Hauske Valtierra. πŸ¨πŸ˜‰πŸ¦
Take a look at art with a retrospective scope on politics at the Whitney Museum. David Wojnarowicz exhibit, History Keeps Me Awake At Night explores history in NYC through the 80's as well as fundamental shifts in culture. πŸ–ΌπŸŽ₯πŸ“° 
Most people have purchased some lunch from a halal cart, on an NYC street. The classic fair is incorporated into our daily lives, delivering a filling meal that bangs for your buck. Now, Panorama Middle Eastern Grill is serving that and more in their elevated Middle Eastern eatery! πŸ”₯πŸ˜‹πŸ‘€
Bringing music out of NYC, with a touch of 90's swag and a lot of authenticities, Princess Nokia is on the way up. The outspoken artist is serving up a signature sound and plenty of vulnerability with her audience. πŸŽ€πŸ‘„πŸŒ†
Groovy Weekend
The weekend has arrived. Get your tickets in hand! There are tons of things to see and do this weekend and it's all in our guide. Grab some bites to eat, some brews to drink or just pull a seat up to watch a live musical performance.
There are free festivals all over the city that boast bands and local vendors. You can also purchase a ticket to one of the art events this weekend while supplies last!
Art And Politics
History Keeps Me Awake at Night
Highlighted in his show at the Whitney Museum of American Art, David Wojnarowicz was a largely self-taught artist that rose in the New York scene in the 1980’s. Queer and diagnosed with HIV, Wojnarowicz used his art as a statement against the U.S. government’s inaction in regards to the AIDS crisis. Not taking on a style of his own, he became an amalgamation of different techniques, representative of the varying groups of people he wished to give a voice to.
The show is a retrospective, essentially bringing his art back to demonstrate America’s need to make a statement similar to what Wojnarowicz did. Lack of inclusion of all people is something Wojnarowicz focused heavily on and is a frequent topic of discussion in politics today.
The show is funded by  The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and The Keith Haring Foundation Exhibition Fund, among others.
The Whitney has also made his music from days in a band available for purchase
Musician Spotlight
Growing up through the foster care system in Harlem, Princess Nokia is unafraid in everything she does. Never backing down, she fuels this passion into her music. Her lyrics support herself and everything she does, calling attention to herself and the images people have of the world around them. The flows and beats behind her are a mix of 90’s hip-hop and R&B.
Princess Nokia identifies as bisexual, starting her music career performing in New York’s gay nightlife scene. She is also a strong supporter of feminism, founding a community collective called the Smart Girl Club. Safe spaces helped her to feel comfortable with who she is and provided her the opportunity to sit down and write lyrics. She understands the difficulties that come with growing up in the city, providing a community outreach that is focused on communication.
Always staying funky and positive, Princess Nokia’s songs are a perfect party mix.
Middle Eastern Grub
Fresh assorted juices like sweet mango and warm pitas stuffed with your favorite filling are waiting for you at Panorama Middle Eastern Grill. The hip spot is serving up affordable and delicious meals that are perfect for students, busy professionals, and other hungry bellies. 
Choose between a falafel or shwarma meal, served with the sauces you prefer. Request the classic creamy white, spicy red or both. Get a feel for the authentic options on the menu and the modern interior in our insider look.
Colorful Sounds
Quiet Events is coming to the Coney Art Walls for the 2018 Quiet Clubbing Festival on Saturday, September 15th.
Grab a pair of multi-channeled headphones, tune in to the colored channel of your choosing and rock out with one of the three DJs on stage!
Once you get tired of one DJ, just switch to another! You’ll be jamming all night long.  
Short Reads
Beth seems to know something of this world of monsters but never lets on too much. Instead, the author highlights Beth’s troubles as a college student. 
We explore her dreams and fears all while vaguely hinting at her life with monster hunting. Setting up an interesting plot from the first sentence, Deborah Coates uses fantasy as the setting for the troubles of youth.

This summer has been full of great concerts and events, but the best has yet to come. Quiet Events puts on parties all throughout the city that focus on providing a unique experience that you’ll never forget.
Quiet Events hosts silent disco parties with three live DJs spinning different genres of music while guests wear headphones that have the option to switch between channels. Each DJ has a color corresponding to the channel they’re playing.
Since you can tell what other guests are listening to by looking at the LED light on the side of the headphone, the event becomes way more social. Tune in to the same channel and join them in singing your heart out.
While traditional clubs and parties are definitely fun in their own right, this type of party allows you to comfortably chat with one another and make it a party on your terms when choosing the music you want to jam to.
Quiet Events is going to end the summer with a bang by hosting their Quiet Clubbing Festival 2018 at the Coney Art Walls on Saturday, September 15th.
Bring a friend or ten because this party is open to everyone ages 21 and up, or even go solo and meet someone new. Either way, this is definitely an event you’ll have to experience first-hand to truly understand so grab your tickets here. See you there?!
